Bank of Japan
Financial Markets Department

In an effort to enhance information provided in the JGB markets and taking account of suggestions from market participants, the Bank of Japan has decided to periodically publish amount outstanding of the Bank's issue-by-issue holdings of JGBs on its Web site (See "Measures for enhancing liquidity in JGB markets and transparency in JGB-related money market operations" released on May 29, 2001). The Bank is today releasing the first set of data as of June 8, 2001. Details are as below. The Bank believes it should make it easier for market participants to estimate tradable amounts of JGBs, thereby contributing to enhancing market liquidity.

Timing of release
